A Halloween Tale-2020

By

The Living Breathing James Brown

It’s a Blue Moon tonight. Not a good night to be all about. Even mice will be hunkered down soon. And the there are whispers on the wind calling to us.

Some hear-Stay Put, stay inside if you wish to survive. Others-Come out and Die with us.

In a Cow Pasture I walked and took the Pic. But then, my neck had tender cold pricks of a warning. Go no farther. I heard that whisper, but I don’t believe in such shenanigans. But I’m sure I heard it.

And then I went inside and sat down. But then the Dogs parted from their sleep and Looked at me as if they were trying to talk to me.

And then, I heard a clanking of chains at the door. Not small chains, but chains a man could not hold the biggest of Beast.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Was bellowing thru the front door. And not once, but several more times. Should I go and see who it was? I just came in from outside and there I heard a whisper yet I do not believe in them when I cannot find the person who spoke them.

Then. There it was over and over.

Come Outside, we need to talk.

And the Dogs Alerted! Bouncing up and all in the Air like they too We’re now possessed by a strange madness. Excessive Excitability was amiss for sure. I know how Dogs react and they are acting like it will be someone that will be in a fight. A fight? Yes, they are growling now. A fight is in their minds as they began hopping up and down in the air.

Do they recognize an unusual danger at the door?

And I wondered-go to the door or get a pistol 1st?

The unknown Visitor at the Door. Your Door is locked. You are reasonably Safe. Come Outside, we need to talk. Once you unlock all your Door Locks, the Visitor has access to all that is You and Yours. And what to do? Open the Door or stand Your Ground.

You could pretend No One is Home. The person keeps saying-Come Outside, we need to talk.

Answer or let them go away? Fight or flight? Or just a simple answer from your side of the Door in Safety?

Who is it? I called thru the Door.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Come Outside? Do I know this person? And the Rattling of those Chains aren’t making me feel more comfortable.

Come Outside, we need to talk.

And the Voice was now becoming more assertive, louder.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Then a fresh rattling of the Chains.

Who is it? Who is it?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Who are you?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Do I know you?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

What do you want?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Then I thought-whoever it is, should I call 911? They won’t tell me who they are and theyvwimt tell me what they want.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Do I Call 911?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Even more vigorous rattling of the Chains was now coming thru the Door with the chains now being lightly brushed against the metal side of the Door.

Can I help YOU?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Then, in an instance, I made up my mind-

I’m not Opening this Door until you tell me who you are and what you want. Tell me now. Who are YOU?

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

This Halloween Trickery has gone too far.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

My house has no New Camera Security System and I stopped paying the Old Security Company for months now and they dropped me. I have no eyes beyond the inside of the Door to the other side. I can’t see the Door from the windows either. I’m in it now. But I can’t let my mind run wild.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

And there I was…un it…what do I do? A prank or something as weird as the whispers I heard earlier? My guy feeling told me to damn well not open the Door. And there was a sudden cold chill upon my body causing Cold Chill Bumps to rise up on my arms.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

Come Outside, we need to talk. Come Outside.

And…
